LA Clippers superstar Paul George admitted it was difficult for his team to beat the LA Lakers for a third straight time.

“Good. It’s hard to beat any team 3 times in a row in this league. It just is what it is, they beat us in the 3rd game. It doesn’t set us back… Life goes on, we’re not down about it. Let’s keep it rolling,” George told reporters, via Tomer Azarly of Clutchpoints.

The All-Star forward led his team in scoring with 31 points, yet the Clippers lost for the first time after six straight wins (112-103) and dropped to 43-20.

On the other hand, the Lakers won their fourth straight and remained on top of the West with a 49-13 record.
